Is it possible to leave a newborn session without baby fever? (The answer: No!)

This lifestyle newborn session took place at their home in Northern Virginia when baby girl was seven whole days new! Her mom and dad were calm, joyful, and their home – peaceful. One of the greatest gifts of my job is being with families during their most joyful moments such as these; when they are bursting with the love and joy of new life! This sweet baby is blessed to have two parents that love her so! May God bless this sweet family always! This sweet baby is so blessed to have two parents that love her so! May God bless this sweet family always!

This beautiful couple…I’m so thankful I was able to take these maternity portraits for them before their baby girl arrived. We met in Washington DC on a very, very chilly Spring morning. I was in a winter coat behind this camera…

I love seeing my children like this: barefoot by the water, running around with sweaty, messy hair, pockets full of sand, and experiencing the magic of childhood. This is life right here and thank God for it!

These two are so genuinely enjoyable to be around and I am so looking forward to seeing them again in the near future for their venue visit and later, their wedding day!…

After much research and taking Covid restrictions into consideration, I realize that realistically, I am only able to offer ONE day of Cherry Blossom Mini’s. Given the popularity of these sessions and the circumstances of our time, I have decided to offer an additional option of private bloom sessions in hopes of capturing both the plethora of pink magnolias that bloom prior to the cherry blossoms, as well as the cherry blossom themselves!

Talk about a glowing mama! I often hear women describe their final weeks as uncomfortable, feeling large, tired, and just bleh. While I know that to be true (that’s how I felt!), I also know that with a little pampering, you can also feel more like the glowing, beautiful, expecting YOU! Amanda can attest to […]

Do you use “old school” prints and store in albums? Right now I feel like I have so many and my kids are only 2 under 2!” This is […]
